Dongle upgrade (new style) with .v2c file¶
These steps apply to all upgrade/downgrade or update operations on a new style dongle. This includes extending/limiting support periods and adding aditional modules (more nodes or modules (e.g. autocad support, import options, simulation engine,...)).
This procedure also applies for licences on an Innovyze® Floating Licence Manager (FLM).
- You need to have an
e-mail with a .v2cfile attached from Innovyze® or InneauTech.
- Access to the computer with the dongle.
Two methods of installing¶
- You can use the Licence Key Setup or the standalone SetKey program, locally installed on the server with the licence. Mostly used with local dongles.
- You can use the dongle driver configuration page (Sentinel Admin Control Center). Mostly used with network dongles.
1. Sentinel Admin Control¶
1.1 Open browser to localhost:1947¶
After you plugin the dongle, let Windows install the drivers.
- point your favourite browser to
- On the Help page that opens, click in the left options menu on
1.2 Select upgrade file¶
- Click on the button
Choose Fileand select the
.v2cfile you received from Innovyze. The filename will appear on the webpage.
- Click on
Apply Fileto execute the update of the dongle. A message will confirm the update has been applied.
2. Licence Key Setup:¶
2.1. Run Licence Key Setup¶
- Run the
Licence Key Setupon the pc that is connected to the dongle or hosts the licence.
2.2. Manage dongle upgrades¶
- Choose the option
Manage dongle upgrades.
2.3. Apply an update file¶
- Choose the option
Apply an update file sent by Innovyze to a Hasp HL dongle
To proceed to the next step a suitable dongle has to be attached to the computer. If not you will receive this error message:
(HASP HL Error 50) A suitable dongle is not attached to the requested server
2.4. Select .v2c file¶
- Select the
.v2cusing the browse button or type\paste the path to the file in the textbox.
Nextto start updating the dongle/licence
A screen with a finish button will be displayed when the dongle upgrade was successful
Finishthe close the setup.
You can verify dongle contents by running a keytest on the dongle. The procedure is explained in this document: Dongle keytest
If for some reason the upgrade couldn't be executed successfully, you will have to contact Innovyze® or InneauTech. You will be asked to create a
.c2v file and send it to us. It contains information about the dongle/licence, that is needed to create the
.v2c update file.
The procedure can be found here: Dongle upgrade .c2v status file (new style)
The procedure above is very similar to this procedure. Just step 3 differs.
